Hi guys! I have a friend that I meet about four or five times a year. He's a workaholic and usually skips meals. I want to give him some sincere advice. Are the advice below used correctly in this case?

1. Please pay attention to your health.
2. Please take care of your health.

Your answers will be greatly appreciated.

Those sentences are fine. You could also say "Please look after your health".

Advice is one of those abstract nouns that often seems to need a singular form when its actual use is being referred to, but strangely doesn't have one. The standard substitute terms are "{A piece / a bit} of advice", or perhaps "recommendation" or "suggestion". All the variations below could be used without raising any eyebrows:

Is the advice below expressed correctly? (Here, 'advice' is being used collectively to cover all the terms)

Are the items of advice below expressed correctly?

Are the recommendations below expressed correctly?

Are the suggestions below expressed correctly?
